Exploring what matters. Finding what works.

The STEM crisis in the United States demands solutions—and nowhere is the search more concentrated than at U.S. News STEM Solutions. Now in its third year, this premier national leadership conference is an outcome-focused forum for the entire network of experts, advocates and change-makers who are proactively working to fill jobs now and advance the future of the STEM workforce. More than a broad-based discussion of the issues, this year’s conference will zero in on tangible results, real successes and collaborative strategies that are already moving the needle. 

At this year’s conference Executive Chairman, Eric Schwarz, will be on the panel “Leading By Example: The Crucial Role of Mentors" on Wednesday, April 23, 3:00-4:00 p.m. We hope that you join us for this session, learn more about our work and connect with our US2020 staff who will also be in attendance.

Imagine one million science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) professionals mentoring students in kindergarten through graduate school.

Imagine them providing uplifting moments of discovery to millions of children through real-world, hands-on projects and academic coaching.

This engagement could fundamentally change the trajectory of STEM education in the United States.

US2020 is a new organization designed to transform this vision into reality.
